Post Frame Steel Install | Final tips

Hey there, folks! Welcome back to the Mad County Bill series, and guess what? We've reached part 5, the final episode of the metal madness! I'm pumped, and I hope you are too. Now, I know, metalwork might not sound like the most thrilling thing ever, but trust me, there are tons of little details that could come in handy, especially if you're building a house with a bunch of windows and whatnot. So, let's dive right into it!

First off, good morning! It's a chilly, snowy day out here, but that won't stop us from getting all these steel details sorted. Now, I ran into a snag with the trim – it wasn't long enough, so I've got to reorder. Fun times, right? Anyway, let's get this show on the road.

So, today's mission: getting that wainscot trim in place. Now, cutting those inside corners can be a bit tricky, but fear not, I'll walk you through it step by step. Measure, mark, and snip – that's the name of the game!

Next up, tackling those outside corners. It's all about precision cutting and bending to get that seamless look. Trust me, it's like crafting a work of art with steel!

Ah, and let's not forget about protecting those vulnerable spots, like around the doors. A little bit of aluminum here, a touch of silicone there, and voila – water-resistant and looking sharp.

Now, onto the nitty-gritty – customizing those corner pieces. Yeah, it's a bit of a puzzle, but with a little bit of finessing, we've got it sorted.

And then there's the matter of that bottom trim. Gotta keep that water at bay, folks! A little extra effort now saves a whole lot of headache later.

Alright, fast forward, and we've got those doors looking slick! It's all about the details, folks – those little trim screws make all the difference. And hey, don't forget the silicone – it's like the cherry on top!

And just like that, two doors down, two to go! It's been a journey, folks, but we're almost there. I can't thank you enough for sticking with me through all the twists and turns of this metalworking adventure.
